Run Silent, Run Deep

For the next 10 days, I will be underground, off the grid, into the wild. I am attending a 10 day silent Vipassana meditation retreat. The code of discipline states that we cannot bring cell phones, computers, books, or journals to the retreat, so I guess I won’t see you guys until October 20th. boys meditating

I do, however, have some surprises for you. Two amazing bloggers have offered to guest blog on EverydayGurus. I’m asking you to show them the same appreciation, gratitude, and love you share on this blog every week.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to partake in the discussion, but I will respond to all comments when I return. {{{hugs}}} to all. Kozo

  1. I’m not sure if you remember me I was the blogger who couldn’t copy & paste your mantra “Bloggers for peace” well I’ve come a long way needless to say I did succeed.
    Hope your retreat is fulfilling in body and mind also interesting title “run silent;run deep” good movie.
    Looking forward to your guest bloggers!

      Of course I remember you, Sevilleestatesflyer. Thank you for the kind wishes. The retreat was amazing. I’m publishing a video about it. Thanks for dropping by and saying hi. You might be one of the only people who recognized the title. 🙂 {{{Hugs}}} Kozo

    Kozo, I have been on two of these retreats, one in BC, and the other in Washington (a bit south of Olympia I think it was) – both experiences *amazing*. You will love it I’m sure. Sink deep.

    No journal?! I’d be so worried about losing all my insights… but then, I’m sure that’s why they do it. To have you really focus on being in the moment and stashing those truths away internally.

    Best of luck – hope it’s magnificent.

    • Kozo Hattori says:

      You hit the nail right on the head, Jennie. They want you to stay in the moment and lead ego fade. Journaling puts us in the past or the future and increases ego since we use “I” so much. {{{hugs}}} Kozo

      Thanks, Rohan. I made an extra long video about it. Tell me what you think when I publish. No rush. It might take you a few years to get to the end of the video. {{{hugs}}} Kozo

    Technology has given us many comforts – mental peace, not necessarily! While its great to be in constant touch with loved ones, sometimes, being disconnected is just what is needed. I remember the two times I was without a phone/network connection. Coincidentally, I was in the mountains – different parts of Himalayas – both times, and quite literally, it was a heavenly experience. I hope you too enjoy your time being disconnected with the outside world, and connecting with your own.

    I love Vipassana. I was lucky enough to do one in Nepal, and then serve in Nepal, so I was at the meditation center nearly a month. It was so fabulous! Hope you enjoyed it! Did you have to get up at 4am?

    • Kozo Hattori says:

      Yep, 4am. Funny that you mention Nepal, because one of the guys I was meditating with was from Nepal. He had done over 10 vipassana courses. Would love to hear about your experience some time. Post a link if you already wrote about it.
      I have a video coming about my experience soon. {{{hugs}}} Kozo
